Why is the Subaru Legacy b4 RSK twin turbo such a relatively cheap car to buy? It is a factory 300 hp, awd sleeper, and still I see them for sale between the 4-8 thousand euros. »
I bought a Subaru SVX and the nightmares finally ended. My nights were restful, free of my demons. But it wasn’t just nightmares I had lost. I had lost my dreams, too.

It seems that it was a big weekend for automotive enthusiasts nationwide, with car shows, races, and club gatherings popping up all over the country. I went down to Long Beach to check out the 11th Annual Japanese Classic Car Show for the first time in the 8 years I’ve lived in Los Angeles, and I wasn’t disappointed.… »
What is the hold up? Unless I’ve been living in a feels cave and solving crimes with my butler, we haven’t had much news regarding production of Subaru diesels.
The Home Depot checkout clerk eyes my cart, then looks up at me, then back at the cart. She wants to say something about the cart’s contents, but she doesn’t know how I will respond.

Last week, I went to Asheville, NC for some much needed vacation time with the family. As usual, I had packed up my trusty old Nikon D5100 for some great picture taking, and again as usual, I forgot it at the house and had to rely solely on my iPhone for taking pictures... So, getting in to Asheville and it’s… »

Meanwhile, when Oppos are posting awesome Woodward Dream Cruise and Pebble Beach shots, I met up with fellow Jalopnik reader GE90man (somebody grant him Oppo authorship—quick!) for some dinner. When we went to our cars to go home, we walked around the lot and took pics of some finds. »
The Justy screams at me as its tiny boosted three-cylinder spins its rotating assembly to the kind of speeds that in its birth era were only seen in F1 cars.
